Na-Jomtien beach cleaning after the strong waves have dumped an awful lot of garbage on the beach.
This is a dire remainder that Thailand is one of the top plastic polluter in the world. When there is strong wind and strong waves, all the junk dumped in the water is coming back onshore. It is the same every year and nothing is done to fix the problem. It is amazing that the news and the authorities always point the finger to the monsoon, but never talk about the root of the problem: pollution.
The municipality of Na Jomtien and Amphur, Sattahip, Chonburi have employees who are cleaning the beach from these dangerous waste. The authorities ask the population to avoid the beach because some of the trash can be toxic. The employees are using gloves and boots to avoid any contact with the water.
